Another issue with inline installed water filters; if you don't take them out or bypass them for winterization and you live in a cold climate (like here in Alaska); when the RV antifreeze gets pumped through all the lines it gets pumped into the filter. It take a long while to get that taste out of the filter after de-winterizing.

Water filter location

I have a '04 Greyhawk 27DS and cannot find the water filter. Anyone know where to look for it?

I have a 2012 3100SS and the filter is behind the water service panel (where the outside shower is located). It can be accessed from inside the rear storage compartment. There is a panel held in place by six screws, and behind that panel is the filter as well as all the other plumbing. I agree with other comments here and about to bypass the filter, and go the a filter connected to the hose outside. I have to climb inside my rear storage to get access to the filter, then take it out, winterize, put everything back in before parking for the winter, the do it again in reverse to put the filter back in before I use it in the spring. If that filter needs to come out for winterizing, they should have made it easier to get to. Everyone chime in.... Do you remove your filter before winterizing? Another option might be to cut this effort in half, and replace the filter with a dry one when it's winterized and not have to do it again in the spring. I assume the reason for removing it for winter is that it' soaking wet with water and may mess things up if it freezes? BTW I blow out my lines, and only use antifreeze in the drains. I do not pump antifreeze thru the system. I live in E. Washington State where it sometimes gets cold in the winter.

Finally got our under sink water filter removed. What a stupid design by Jayco. Had to remove the whole bank of drawers then struggled to reach the connections with 2 pairs of pliers, a super PITA, thank you Jayco for a miserable hour that we will never get back. As we sometimes need to winterize, another reason that it will never be replaced. Just need to install the 'winterize' tubing and leave it there, as soon as I get some dope for the plastic threads (if needed). I use a filter on my incoming hose connection and that's enough. The hose connection filter also helps regulate the water pressure from the camp ground.

Thanks for the reply, Trippers. Went and looked and not sure if it there as there is a wood panel at back of drawers where drawer slides are mounted. Do you have to remove that? Not even sure if there is one, actually. Will look at outside service panel next.

Try looking in the largest outside storage compartment. You may see a panel with lots of screws. Take the panel off, and you should find the water filter. It is a huge pain to get to it because you must take most of the stuff in the compartment out. I just bypassed mine and never use it. If you want a water filter, buy one that you can use outside at the hose inlet. this is much easier.
